Bremen’s first H2 station is now open


Daimler, Shell and Linde have inaugurated the city of Bremen’s first hydrogen (H2) filling station.

Drivers of emission-free fuel-cell cars now have a refuelling option for the route between Hamburg and North Rhine-Westphalia. By creating this important hub, the partner companies have taken another step towards a nationwide H2 supply network.

Daimler is the developer of the H2 station, which is integrated into a Shell service station. The innovative H2 filling station technology comes from Linde. The three companies are partners in the joint venture H2 Mobility, which is building a H2 infrastructure in Germany. The H2 station in Bremen is state-of-the-art and offers drivers an intuitive fuelling experience similar to that of conventional vehicles. The refuelling process takes three to five minutes to complete.

Germany’s Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is supporting the construction of the country’s first 50 H2 filling stations via its National Innovation Programme for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NIP), and has invested around €900,000 in the construction of the facility in Bremen.
